“Nothing to mention. ”
Hungry for shabu last evening. So as we were in Ginza we looked for the nearest. Found this shaubusen and place looked decent although only with one table occupied. Thinking because of the late time we promptly asked for a table of 4. Ordered their Waygu sets but overall although service was good an...d waitress was obliging the food quality wasn’t value for the money.

“Excellent local Shabu Shabu restaurant ... delicious and fun!!!”
Packed with locals eating at counter ... you cook your own Shabu Shabu meat in a delicious soup. Perfect for kids and adults and very entertaining ... Not a tourist trap... most diners were Japanese. Somewhat hard to find .. but excellent !!!

“Here we come again!”
Every visit to Japan will include a visit to Ginza and lunch to one of our favourites is a must. During Sunday the road starting from Shimbashi leading towards the end of Ginza is closed to motorists and leisurely walk is a treat, looking around at shops, Mitsukoshi and Matsuya, including people wat...ching and serious fashionistas showing their latest acquisitions are a feast. Our feet mostly lead us to Shabu-sen where we enjoy their shabu-shabu and sukiyaki, I opted for the former while brod had the later. Where can one have real Matsuzaka and Kobe beef, of course here in Japan where the cows are lovingly spoilt with beer and massaged with gentle brushes. On with our reasonable set meal and some additional later the afternoon went smoothly. The clear soup was subtly spice with pepper and some salt, soon we were perspiring and exchanging more stories about the difference between US and Japanese beef. We looked around and watched a family opposite us enjoying lavish meals with large portion of costly meats, obviously from Mandarin-speaking region and Japanese women on their own feasting. It is noticeable everywhere in Japan for women to dine alone, nobody bat an eyelid even on costly restaurants, I sometimes do on a whim! Meat so tender, vegetables although on the scant side is still a delight and soon after we tipped the rice on one cooking vessel to make porridge and extra order of noodles on the other one. The meal was capped with creamy ice-cream. Strolling around Ginza during Tokyo visit is a joy to do, and Shabu-sen is likewise!

“Great Shabu Shabu”
A local friend recommended it to us. As a previous review mentioned, you need to realize it is in the basement of the building, which I soon learned in my travels through Japan is where you can find some of the best places to eat! It was a Sunday night and there was a line (of mostly locals), which ...I took as a good sign. We did not have to wait too long and were treated to a lovely meal. The noodles at the end were an extra treat. Meat is freshly sliced and all the food is great. It is a local place but we were able to communicate through pointing and simple English/Japanese. Located in a nice area of Ginza which is fun to walk around in the evening.
